Sandy Ridge Construction uses AMVIC 3.1 blocks because they are stronger, quieter, healthier & 30% more energy efficient. Also exceeds BC Building Code requirements. The ICF (insulated concrete forms) lowers your heating and cooling bills. Sound transmission tests have shown that insulated concrete walls allow less than one third as much sound to transfer through the wall as conventional wood walls. ICF homeowners, like ourselves rarely hear disturbing outside noises. A home built with ICF creates a quieter living environment.
The proven combination of concrete and rigid insulation provide an incredibly solid structure for your financial investment. ICF walls carry a fire rating of 3 hours minimum, while conventional wood walls are rated at 20 minutes.
